We subscribed to Amazon Music (with the free trial for new members) so we could see what all the fuss is about. Today we're going to share with you our Amazon Music Unlimited review, which is specifically written with the Australian platform in use.
What is Amazon Music Unlimited?
Amazon Music Unlimited is a streaming service that was released in 2007, and has been operating for over a decade. It is different from Prime Music which is exclusive to Prime Members and is an add-on to the Prime membership.
Amazon Music Unlimited is an upgraded and separate version, with more than 70 million song options compared to Prime Music’s 2 million. It can be integrated with Amazon devices for no-hands control with Alexa.
It's a great alternative to Spotify, SoundCloud, Apple Music and Youtube Premium.
What are the features of Amazon Music Unlimited?
Amazon Music Unlimited allows you to stream more than 60 million songs without any ad interruptions in between. This includes top songs from international artists such as Ed Sheeran, Taylor Swift, BTS and more. It allows instant access to newly released albums, making it ideal for die-hard fans.
Amazon Music Unlimited does not only allow you to listen to music ad-free, but also creates personalised playlists based on what you listen to. The app automatically creates playlists of your favourite hits and songs from artists that you frequently listen to.
There are also dedicated playlists for top artists like Lady Gaga and Twice. There are additional playlists that are structured around moods and genres. You can choose to have a slow instrumental playlist for studying and an upbeat one for workouts.
One of the best features is the unlimited skips. Unlike free streaming platforms that have a cap on the number of skips, Amazon Music Unlimited allows you to play any music you want for hours.
This service also enables offline streaming. You can download as many songs as you like and listen to them without Wi-Fi access. This is great option to limit data use and save money on phone plans.
Besides songs, Amazon Music Unlimited grants access to side-by-sides, which are behind-the-scenes audio by singers and song-writers. Podcasts are also available to listen to as well. This subscription service also offers live Twitch streaming.
This streaming platform can be integrated with other products from Amazon, such as Echo Dots and Shows, as well as Fire TVs.
What Amazon Music plans are available?
Amazon Music Unlimited currently has 2 different plans to suit households of all sizes. The Individual Plan is priced at $11.99 AUD per month and allows just a single device to use the service. The Individual Plan is the most popular subscription plan among the two.
For large families, there is the Unlimited Family Plan which comes in at $17.99 AUD a month. This allows a maximum of 6 people, which means that up to 6 smartphones or tablets can run the app simultaneously. This option is the best value.
What Amazon Music trials are available?
Normally, there is a 30-day free trial period for new users. This applies to both the Individual Plan and the Unlimited Family Plan.
Currently, Prime Members get to try out Amazon Music Unlimited for 3 months without spending a dime (correct December 2020 may change without warning). This is only accessible to Prime Members who have never tried this platform.
